Arden University’s efforts in promoting the field of engineering was celebrated at the recent North West Engineering Excellence Awards, where it secured a prestigious win.
An opportunity for academics and practitioners to come together to celebrate the work of their peers, The IMechE North West Engineering Excellence Awards dinner took place in Manchester and on the night, Arden won the Inclusive Curriculum Development category for its Computing Curriculum, recognising the work the institution has undertaken in that area.
Receiving the award was Arden University’s Head of School for Computing, Dr Mohammed Rehmann.
‘I’m delighted to receive an award for Inclusive Curriculum Development at the event and gladly accepted it on behalf of all of the colleagues who have been working with me to develop our programmes.
Our key focus has been on designing a programme that is open and accessible to a wide audience, whilst at the same time preparing them for careers within the Computing sector and related industries.
Employability is a key aspect of our provision, providing students with the skills they need through the use of industry standard tools and platforms. Our students come to us with a diverse range of experiences but are all driven by the same need to develop their skills and enhance their employability.
I’m proud of the work we have done as a team and I am looking forward to seeing the results of our efforts at graduation!’
